Super-Quick Healthy Pancake Breakfast

No, that is NOT whipped cream on the pancake!  If you know me, you know that I would never start my day with whipped cream or anything unhealthy because it starts you off on the wrong foot.  What that is is Trader Joe’s Whole Milk Coconut Cream yogurt atop a HEALTHY and SATISFYING pancake!

If you are in a rut with breakfast and you love pancakes but you know that your run-of-the-mill white flour pancake doused in syrup is not the healthiest choice for breakfast, then you are in for a treat with these healthy pancakes that are quick enough to make on a weekday and delicious enough for any day of the week!

Top them with fresh fruit and a dollop of creamy yogurt instead of syrup!
